Colten's first birthday party was a lot of fun! His theme was frogs. We made little flies, dirt pie, and a frog cake! We also couldn't have asked for a nicer day! Thank you Mom!!! Without my mom's help this never would have happened as nicely as it did. Also, Thanks Brooke for some great ideas and my invites!! Enjoy the pictures!!

Happy Birthday Colten!!!

Celebrating his Birthday
1 Year Old!

My Sweet Baby Boy

Minutes Old

Wow! A year ago on Tuesday, we were sitting in the hospital awaiting your arrival! We knew you were coming that day and were so excited, we could barely sleep the night before. When we got to the hospital at 4am that morning, we couldn't believe that the day had finally arrived. My labor and delivery were so easy that when they said it was time to push, your daddy asked, "When?". Fifteen minutes later and you were out. It was love at first sight!! You were so little and perfect! I couldn't believe that you were actually here. From the very first night you were an amazing little sleeper, just so sweet! You only cried if you were hungry or needed changed! I love nursing you and when you look up at me, it melts my heart. Every stage has been my favorite and I just look forward to what is going to be coming up. You are such an amazing little boy!! We love you so much!!

Well, we arrived in Seattle a couple of nights ago and it is so nice to be home! I met my niece, Lilah, for the first time yesterday and man is she a doll!! Just such a sweetheart! Colten got to play with his cousin Hudson yesterday and they had a fun time together. Hudson was very sweet, sharing his toys with Colten. He also can't get enough of his baby sister. He just wants to kiss her all the time! My parents have set up a nursery for the grandkids and it is great!! We are dying Easter eggs tonight and are planning on possibly going to the zoo on Saturday. We are also getting ready for Colten's 1st Birthday!! It's on Tuesday and then his party is on the 18th!! Can't believe my baby is almost one! Love that little man more and more every single day!! OH and he is definitely taking a lot more steps!!!

Well Colten and I are sick. I have broncitis and have been coughing a ton! Colten has an double ear infection. I took him in on Monday and he wasn't sick, but then after I got told that I waas sick, we took him in. Now we just have to watch him to make sure he doesn't get worse and then me to make sure mine doesn't get worse! And this is 3 days before we fly home! Let's hope we all start feeling better. Thank goodness for Hunter because he takes such good care of us...although I really wish my mom was here. There's nothing like having your mom to take care of you!
